Previous rank:

Next rank:
Bear Scout


The Wolf Scout program is for boys who have completed first grade (or are age 8). After earning the Bobcat badge, a boy may earn the Wolf badge.

Often, den meeting activities enable the Wolf Scouts to complete requirements toward an award or rank. For Tiger through Bear ranks, if the activity is completed outside of the den meeting, the parent, adult partner, or another trusted adult should sign in the boy’s handbook, indicating the Cub Scout has done his best to complete the requirement. The den leader then approves that requirement after consultation with the family or the boy to confirm completion. If the requirement is completed in a den meeting, the den leader signs in both places. Den leaders may, however, ask an assistant or parent who helps at meetings to play the role of “Akela” and assist with the approvals. For Webelos and Arrow of Light ranks, the den leader signs for approval of all requirements, unless the den leader delegates this responsibility. The Den Chief helps lead the meetings. The Denners and Assistant Den Leaders lead Opening and Closing flag ceremonies and help with setup and cleanup.

“A boy is not a sitting-down animal.”
